Guess Connecticut is no longer the land of millionaires and billionaires…
Forbes, once again, is out with their annual “400 wealthiest Americans” list and, shockingly, hardly any of them are from Connecticut! Even more shocking, no one from Connecticut made the top 10 OR 20.
I sincerely hope our politicians will chew this information over because this is a rather hard pill to swallow considering most of them believe that every resident has bottomless pockets. Might be a bit of a wake up call to see those “bottomless pockets” technically belong to only 8 people.
Even then, who knows how much they’re paying into our government’s coffers. I guess that makes them smart…
Anyways, this goes to show that the wealth has officially fled the Nutmeg State. Connecticut may have been home to some of the wealthiest people in the nation, but that honor is quickly evaporating.
